Cooperation from PPPs against deforestation in Vietnam

As of: June 2021

Although the Central Highlands of Vietnam are characterised by extensive forested areas, their acreage has declined significantly over the last few decades. This project is helping to reduce deforestation and forest degradation in a high-priority protected area in the Central Highlands. The project is also supporting sustainable landscape planning and effective cooperation between the public and private sector. Project aims include improving agricultural production as well as providing support to communities for both agriculture and forestry. Training courses targeting improved agricultural methods as well as capital investment in modernising agricultural businesses are intended to improve both harvests and earnings in buffer zones. To prevent deforestation, the private sector is also being encouraged to invest in systems that enable monitoring and tracking within supply chains./
